The #1 Box-Office Hits the Year Our Last Five Presidents were Elected
|YEAR||PRESIDENT-ELECT||#1 BOX-OFFICE HIT|
|1980||Ronald Reagan||The Empire Strikes Back|
|1988||George H.W. Bush||Rain Man|
|2000||George W. Bush||The Grinch|
|2008||Barack Obama||The Dark Knight|
Mostly I was amused by the juxtaposition of Ronald Reagan and the return of far-right conservatism with “The Empire Strikes Back,” but some of the others aren't bad, either.
